This book is based on an in-depth filmed conversation between Howard Burton and neurophilosopher Pat Churchland, UC San Diego. Pat Churchland has done extensive research in the fields of philosophy of neuroscience, philosophy of the mind and neuroethics. During this mind-stretching conversation Pat explores how the brain works, how we are able to represent the external world of objects and our inner world of thoughts, self and consciousness.

This carefully-edited book includes an introduction, Of Mice and Men, and questions for discussion at the end of each chapter:

I. Playing with Brains - Dissecting brains and meeting Francis Crick

II. Neuropioneers - Ruffling philosophical feathers

III. Sociological Fault Lines - Mind vs. brain

IV. Connecting Horizontally - Investigating “philosophy of mind”?

V. Touching a Nerve - Spreading the message

VI. Social Relevance - Explorations of morality through biology

VII. Free Will - An age-old quandary resurfaces

VIII. Eliminative Materialism - What it means and doesn’t mean

IX. Consciousness - Towards progress?

X. Summing Up - Some key questions
